Hi,
The engine should have Cosworth written across the top of the rocker box.

wouldnt that only prove its a cosworth engine? i thought the OP wanted to check the car was a genuine cosworth one, not one cobbled together from bits of 190's from scrapyards. sorry if it seems a bit picky!

Might have been worth checking before you bought it?

Anyway, congratulations on your purchase, superb car; hopefully, you've got the half leather interior as well. Any pictures???

My freind had a Cossie 8 years ago with full leather trim as well. I was sooo amazed with performace as it does have very nice kick and it was way faster than anything I have been in at the time.

Hit 'Go advanced'

There should be a paper clip, click on this and then simply browse to the saved file and load.

Slightly bigger wheels would make it look alot better along with some minor paint touchups
